I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Summer\Autumn Projects

Where did the summer go?  The time just flew by, but I did find time to make a beach bag, courtesy of the pattern by Kathy's Patch. I only wish I could have found time to go to the beach...but bear making had to be my priority for Hugglets in London.

I saw a delightful cot quilt pattern in Quilters World back in the Spring. I couldn't source the green panel here in the UK, so purchased it from the US.  Pink and blue panels were available here, but I wanted green. Quilters World photo below:

I managed to find the outer border fabric.  I am using some of my stash fabrics for the half square triangles and narrow borders.

 Materials for the project...oooh...how did that blueberry muffin get into the photo?

 All the rotary cutting done...my least favourite part of a project.  Accurate cutting is stressful...so easy for hand to slip or mis-measure?

Half square triangles for border.  I created a little plastic template to check my squares are an accurate size.  They are!  My skill at creating these has really improved.  Yahhhhhh!

To be continued.....

I have just signed up for a Fall-Inspired Mug Rug Swap...see side panel for link if you would like to join in the fun!  This will be my first ever swap, so I'm really excited about doing this and making new online quilting friends.  I'm sure there must be some kindred spirits out there!  I've got lots of autumnal coloured cottons left from my autumn colours quilt - my first ever quilt, made last year.
